The Risk Management Association | Rocky Mountain Chapter

About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to advance the use of sound risk principles in the financial services industry.

The Risk Management Association

Founded in 1914, The Risk Management Association (RMA) is a not-for-profit, member-driven professional association; our mission is to advance the use of sound risk principles in the financial services industry. RMA promotes an enterprise approach to risk management that focuses on credit risk, market risk, and operational risk.

RMA helps our members use sound risk management principles to improve institutional performance and financial stability, and enhances the risk management competency of individuals through information, education, peer sharing, and networking.

Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, RMA has approximately 2,500 institutional members and includes banks of all sizes as well as nonbank financial institutions. There are approximately 16,000 risk management professionals who are chapter members in financial centers throughout North America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific.

About the Rocky Mountain Chapter

We are committed to attracting a diverse base of members, just as the banking and finance industries are committed to the diverse, inclusive culture that their executives and customer segments demand.

RMA Rocky Mountain volunteers work to reach, integrate and serve individuals of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religions, abilities and ages. People of any national origin, socioeconomic or political affiliation are welcome and highly desired as guests, members and leaders of RMA Rocky Mountain.

Our chapter is organized and run by volunteer members. We strongly encourage current or prospective members to become involved in shaping the future direction of our chapter by contacting any of the current officers or committee chairs. We would also be happy to discuss your questions and the many benefits that can be derived from membership in RMA.
